Trump accuses China of letting petroleum into North Korea

3 months, 9 days ago

West Palm Beach, Florida( CNN) President Donald Trump said Thursday that he is “very disappointed” in China for allegedly selling oil to North Korea, tweeting that the on-again, off-again Trump ally was “caught red handed” permitting petroleum to be imported by the rascal regime.

The tweet, which came as Trump was on his golf course in Palm Beach County, comes after outlets in South Korea reported that spacecrafts have spotted Chinese ships transferring oil to Northern korean ships. Trump said that if this practice continues, there will “never be a friendly solution to the North Korea problem.”

A White House official and multiple National Security Council officials were unable to explain the President’s tweet and did not respond to questions about whether he was referring to the recent reports from South Korea.
